Known as the Main Street of America, Route 66 was one of the original highways built in the U.S. This investment grade silver shield is the first in a new series honoring iconic landmarks from America's historic Route 66. Shown on this first issue is the Gemini Giant, a 30-foot-tall advertising prop from the 1960s, who stands outside the Launching Pad restaurant in Wilmington, Illinois. Unlike most silver rounds, only a limited number of these .999 silver pieces will be produced, which makes this unique highway shield-shaped specimen especially desirable. Enclosed in a specially shaped capsule, this precious silver would make an excellent gift.
